Ex-Kano governor: Crisis will tear PDP apart

A member of the Board of Trustee (BOT) for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prof Sam Oyovbaire, has described the reasons put forward for defection to All Progressives Congress (APC), by the three (3) PDP governors as baseless, illogical and untenable to the doctrines of democratic principles, norms and values.

Former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has said the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party will tear it apart in the end.

The former Governor of Kano State spoke on Friday in an interview with the Hausa Service of the BBC.

Kwankwaso said the current crisis has weakened the party as an opposition, adding that it is “heightened by those who are after leadership” of the party.

He said: “Now the strength of the party has reduced and in the end what will happen is that it will tear us apart.

“But the crisis is heightened by those who are after leadership.

“They are not doing it for the betterment of their people.”

It could be recalled that last week the National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, was removed through a court order and later suspended by the Rivers State chapter of the party.
